Mar 14: Johnb’s Racing Tips & Chat


IT was a 0.25pt profit for Johnb on Sunday thanks to a win for his 9-4 nap.

March is now a 156.28 profit and Johnb says: “Quiet day on Monday before Cheltenham starts but we do have an interesting horse running. Disappointed when last seen over a year ago but he has moved stables, the interesting part is that Konig Dax is the only horse to have beaten Douvan and he beat him convincingly.

    guys opinions please the cross country chase who are people backing i fancy Josie hill and i feel has though i may have been slightly over confident 5/2 just seem like real value but having spent last 3 days really delving deep in all races ive backed this is only one niggling at me Balthazar King 13/2 has won of both entries only not running during the two years he went to GN yard seems to suggest hes back to full fitness after his fall, he has given up huge amounts of weight to previous runner ups and still won now with it not being a handicap he will be 11b better of to Josie orders.

    on the other Hand Josie orders has been in good form riding confidently tons stamina and finishes strongly with the form a good fav i thought would be around evens but the prices havent moved and it could bust a few accums its just niggling at me might of got over excited and screwed up here.

    anyway main bet today 2:50 oscar jane 2/1NAP,NB,NNB

    also on 3:45 bells of ainsworth 4/1 and a double on them alslo along with trbel with john b tip best of luck please give your opions on tbe cross country chase thank you.

    At face value I would prefer to on josies orders.
    Firstly at 12 years old B King must be in decline no matter we look at it.
    B King last run was 340 days ago factored in with a fall in his last run.
    Im actually surprised Hobbs didnt run him again to restores Kings confidence but that just my opinion.

      im going to chelters on Tuesday.
      seen your picks above
      looking to do a placepot from your picks, I would ask johnb also, but I don’t think he likes my opinions on you know who …
      if I take douvan and vroom vroom as bankers, that leaves 2 in the other races = 16 lines.
      maybe add one more in a handicap, the 2-50 or 4-50 for 24 lines. any ideas ?????

      also ive seen vroom vroom evens, and douvan 2-5, do you reckon this is worth a bit of a plonk as a fairly high stake double at just over 7-4 ???

          or see Jeremy ‘im an ex gambler’ kyle lumping on…….
          spotted him last year
          odd being an ex gambler in that environment don’t you think.
          I was expecting him to say ‘put something on it’, like he does to the wasters on his show,

          I fancy Thomas crapper in the last, 16-1, 2nd to irish cavalier in the race last year, and 2nd to don poli in the martin pipe in 2014.
          trainer in fair form, only 4 wins from 118 this season, but those 4 have come in the last 13 runners, and all in the last month.

              my £5 placepot effort

              yorkhill 11-2 mullins stooge to beat the heavily backed stablemate min
              douvan 2-5 banker to place
              cause of causes 20-1 won here last year
              annie power 2-1, won 7 from 7 at distance, mares allowance, supplemented fpr 30 grand to race.
              vroum vroum mag 11-10 banker to place
              southfield royale 8-1 because alanm says so, ok….

              then spend my winnings on Thomas crapper 16-1 and racing pulse 33-1 (trained by last years wnning trainer becky Curtis) both each way in the last.
              that’s the plan, more likely I will be so skint by then, I will probably take some big issues to sell to pay for my train home……

    This was my write up for the Gold Cup which was posted on the 1st February in the racing forum but it seems to have been missed by a lot of people.

    GOLD CUP – Cheltenham 18th March 2016

    L’Escargot, Easter Hero, Millhouse, Cottage Rake, Golden Miller, Arkle, Kauto Star, Best Mate, who was the best Gold Cup winner, who will win in 2016
    These eight horses have 21 Gold Cups between them, Golden Miller has done the best with five wins in a row 1932 when aged 5 right through to 1936 aged 9, there was no race in 1937 but he came back in 1938 to run second, Cottage Rake had three failed examinations by a vet before he started racing and went on to win three Gold Cups

    So to 2016, last years winner Conneygree doesn’t run because of injury but it’s still a hard race to call, I have had thoughts on more than one horse this year with so many unanswered questions.

    I know this horse is one of the popular horses on this site but I just can’t entertain him for this race, in 2014 he fell in the RSA and last year he came third in the Ryanair, this season he fell in the King George but basically he isn’t a Cheltenham horse, looking at him last year he didn’t enjoy it

    Willie Mullins may have virtually everything, but he has never won a Gold Cup
    I have always liked this horse but I don’t think he is a Gold Cup horse, my view is he won’t stay the three miles two & a half furlongs, Willie Mullins should send Vautour to the Ryanair

    Second in this race last year but on his two other visits to Cheltenham he has fallen, and I thought last years second flattered him as I thought Conneygree went off too hard, it takes a lot to lead all the way but still managed to win, again this is another horse not for me because he can make mistakes and I can’t trust the distance between him and Conneygree last year

    I think this horse has a better chance than Don Cossack “same owner” and Vautour “same trainer” and I think Don Poli will stay all day
    He is two out of two at Cheltenham and is definitely one for the first three places

    What a revelation this horse has been since his breathing operation and he is still on for the million pound bonus if he can win the Gold Cup after winning the first two legs, I just don’t fancy him, although he is better after his operation I just can’t see him staying this distance

    Another horse having a good season and I think he is better out in front making the pace, but I don’t think he will be allowed to do that or if connections would want him to do that, last year he was kept off the pace, got outpaced five out and never got close to them and I can see the same thing happening again

    Third last year and ran a decent race but as I said earlier it takes a lot to lead a Gold Cup all the way so again I think the distance between him and Conneygree flattered Road To Riches and again another horse not for me although could sneak a place

    Sixth in this race last year beaten twenty five lengths but went on to win the Grand National, if turning up at Cheltenham again I can only see him being outclassed again, because a Gold Cup takes stamina and speed and last year he simply got outpaced

    Although favourite for the RSA I would like to see this horse run in the Gold Cup, unbeaten in three starts over fences but still a novice, but I do like him
    third in last years Albert Bartlett but after getting hampered he stayed on all the way to the line
    He is 33/1 with betway and that is very tempting but it’s not no runner no bet and he isn’t guaranteed to run, but if he does I think he has a good chance of at least placing

    Fourth last year and I thought that was a good run considering he didn’t settle too well, he is a horse that runs better February to April time and if settling better this year he has a good chance at bigger odds, currently 40/1 skybet non runner no bet

    There are other horses in the race but these are the main ten in the betting if asking their chance

    My early thoughts are
    DON POLI 6/1
    HOLYWELL 40/1
    NO MORE HEROES 33/1 or 12/1 nrnb

    Not tipping anything yet but this is my shortlist of three

      Most meetings will be on itv4 also, while the main itv channel will be showing repeats of endless cooking programmes and bond movies for the 350th time, another blow to this great sport.

    John been trying make my mind up about KONIG DAX first horse i spotted when i opened the paper

    on the 2014 french form when he beat DOUVAN he looks thrown in on a mark of 118 in fact he looks 10 to 12 lbs in

    but his last run over 12 months ago when with mccain is a worry and he was tailed of going to bet him hoping Pipe has
    got him back on song

    Seen a few comments saying Cue card won’t stay. Well let’s just say, everytime I visit Colin he laughs at this and says Cue card is literally a different horse and keeps improving. So many people are hoping Cue card does the business, as the after party will be insane! E/w on cue card is the safe bet as Don cossack is the one I fear.

    Thistlecrack looks beautiful, when I saw her on the weekend I swear she winked at me and told me to lump even more on! But biggest worry is Cole Harden.

    Yanworth probably the week banker, along with Douvan for those who can lump the thousands on. Biggest issue for Yanworth is York hill.

    Cue Card

    Not very Imaginative, but it’s all about the money. Excuse my spelling in the post.
